Florida trans ‘bathroom ban’ fails to pass

Republican Frank Artiles proposed the bill
in retaliation to a trans anti-discrimination law.
Plans to ban trans people from using toilets and changing rooms have been abandoned in Florida.

Miami Republican Frank Artiles’ proposed “Single-Sex Public Facilities” bill has failed to progress past the committee stage of the legislation process and has been abandoned.

The bill would have made it a crime for trans people to use single-sex facilities in workplaces, schools or any business that is open to the public.

It stated: “Single-sex public facilities are places of increased vulnerability and present the potential for crimes against individuals using those facilities, including, but not limited to, assault, battery, molestation, rape, voyeurism, and exhibitionism."
